As of November 24, 2014 practicing with Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.
Susan Seabrook represents clients at all levels of tax administration and in litigation, with significant experience successfully resolving matters involving complex technical and procedural issues, high profile IRS initiatives, and those involving the IRS’s invocation of judicial doctrines and anti-abuse provisions. Susan represents clients in all phases of discovery and at trial and advises on big picture strategic issues such as choice of forum, factual development techniques, expert witnesses, and effective use of FOIA requests, and discovery (particularly e-discovery techniques).
Susan advises a diverse client base, including multinational corporations, financial institutions, private equity, health care companies, life and reinsurance companies, and individuals. She is particularly adept at best practices to proactively manage IRS examinations and strategic approaches to IRS Appeals settlements, including the use of alternative dispute resolution tools and tactics.
